“It just seems like niggas trying to sound like my old shit,” sings the Weeknd on “Reminder.” Ironically, years after remaking contemporary R&B in his druggy, sex-obsessed vision on his iconic debut EP House of Balloons, the Toronto singer has settled into a familiar routine. We know that his songs will explore love as either a tortured form of codependency or transactional pornography; that he will boast of his forays into a one-percent world of luxury vehicles, white lines and sylph-like women; and that the beats will possess a synthesized sheen that gleams like coated stock paper in Vogue magazine.

There’s a raw and emotional version of the still wonderful Smalltown Boy (Somerville’s best song) as well as an intriguing re versioning of Why? from the same era. Impressively the

Still sounding as relevant as ever, ‘All Bright Electric’ is classic old school Feeder and perhaps their heaviest record to date. As 9pm approaches, Feeder take to the stage and kick off the set with new track ‘Another Day On Earth’. Next up they blare out comeback single ‘Universe Of Life’, which combines heavily distorted guitars and a melody which proves difficult to forget. With the amps seemingly on full blast, Feeder have the crowd’s attention. Following the tragic loss of
